Make: Sweet n’ Spicy Lebkuchen
Lesson: Lebkuchens are a traditional German Christmas cookie. Similar to gingerbread, this sweet treat was supposedly created by medieval German monks to hand out during the holidays. The fun part about these pastries are that they’re shaped much larger than what we normally expect a cookie to be. Combine that with the oft-used rectangular shape, and you’ve got yourself one very special and festive dessert.
